c_20127.nls error after sysprep.

sflesch, from scratch.

And some reported that networked install will still have some issues with sysprep.

I tested the reseal without problem.

You can get around this problem by creating a i386 folder in the sysprep folder and then put the files that are being requested in that folder. You can get the files from the "nlited" windows XP folder or from the CD that you burned.

edenkers, does that means that this problem is still present? Which files did you miss and could you please explain in short how to repeat it?

Unfortunately, I'm still having this (similar) problem with reseal. I just keep getting the errors for missing files. It's starts off with the c_20127.nls which you can find already installed on the harddrive and the rest of the files are to be found in the i386 directory on the WinLite CD.

I made sure I checked the box on the Compatibility box for Windows Activation and Sysprep, but it didn't change anything. Is there some setting that I've chosen that screwed up everything?

Here's a incomplete list of those missing files (I just got tired of listing them by using a floppy):

2,520 8514FIX.FO_

I'm working on XP SP2 master image thats fits on all PCs possible and i'm having the same issue. I build my image using the last version of nLite, I did removed all unused language files to make the image smaller. Maybe its linked with the issue ? Did you guys removed some language files 2 ?

Also I found on some forums that if you install your OS from a CD the source path in regedit will be D: (CD-Rom letter), but is has to be C: since your making a master image and the XP CD you used early w'ont be loaded to the PC. SO by changing the value to C:, the c_20127.nls file should be found. I'm testing it write now, I'll get back to you.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup]

"SourcePath"="C:\\"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion]

"SystemRoot"="C:\\WINDOWS"

"SourcePath"="C:\\"

"PathName"="C:\\WINDOWS"

I have this problem also with my images.

To fix it , I did the following:

Create a folder called I386.

Put the following files in it:

Make sure to remove the hidden attribute on the files.

In the sysprep. inf add the following line to the [unattended] section:

InstallFilesPath=C:\i386

That should fix the error messages after syspreping.

Well I added all of those files you suggested bigfoot18, but now it says its missing agt0407.dll.

What the heck are all these missing files related to?

Why does nlite break sysprep?

Oops forgot to add the msagent files to that directory. I took them out of the list because I thought they were specific to what i was removing.. Guess not.

got to windows\msagent\intl and copy all the dlls from there to the i386 folder.

that should fix your problem.

I dont have a clue why it breaks sysprep, just how to work around it.

Yea, I ended up 'fixing' that image by just giving it the Windows XP CD so it could copy all it needed. Then sysprepping again. All fixed.

Would be nice if nlite didn't break this...

Sorry to activate this old thread again but the problem is still there in the latest version 1.3RC2.

The Plan: Checking out RIS (Remote Installation Service) that ships with Windows 200(3) Server.

I use my trusted WinXP CD that has all the Service Packs and Patches up to January 2007 included.

Installed in VMware, then created the image with the RIS tool (riprep.exe). It will simply copy the installation to a Windows Server and prepares it for deployment. The image on the server installs without problems back to the PC.

Now, I take the CD from above, I only use it to make unattended install (nothing removed!). Also some of the fixes and tweaks nlite offers. I install one machine then use riprep.exe to image that one.

After it's finished I test the RIS image again. Well, during setup the error message about c_20127.nls pops up. I can click cancel and it's running through. If I click browse it's complaining about a ton of other files.

Nlite is doing something to the files that prompts this error and I have no idea what it is. Maybe it's possible to fix nlite and not use some workarounds?

When I created my nLite CD I did remove all the language file I did not need. Maybe it<s related because the missing file is some kind of language font code page. You guys did the same thing ?

Gonna try soon, thx for reporting.

What is the status of this issue? I'm still getting the error as of today on v1.3.5. I started from scratch with a clean config and a clean XP-SP2 source.

Hitting escape gets around it, but beleive it or not I have techs stupid enough to call me every time they see it (after the 3rd email explaining it).
